A major fire erupted in the warehouse belonging to Palettes Perron Wednesday night and quickly spread throughout entire building. Palettes Perron is Sawyerville’s largest employer with 31 employees. The business has been in operation for 50 years. There were no injuries, but the building is a complete loss. According to Assistant Director of Fire Services for Cookshire-Eaton, Sylvain Dussault, the call came in at 1:52 a.m. Thursday morning. A resident living on rue Jacques, right next to the Palettes Peron building, noticed flames shooting up from the centre of the building around the silo.
